I’ve been working on the sets and the models for weeks now. This is an ambitious animation project for the time available. What is it with me and the deep end ? But I’m totally engaged with the process of making, I’m effectively drawing with wire. As that unfolds I’m getting more and more excited about the storytelling possibilities that emerge as I go along.
I can’t really talk about the work. If the work works, it speaks for itself. Either it does or it doesn’t, it’s not for me to say. I do want to talk about my motivations, what makes me care so much about this daft, uncertain job. I’m trying in different ways to work out where I am in all of this culture stuff, where I belong. It feels like I live and work in the tiny gap between the human-ness of objects and the object – ness of humans.
There’s something so poignant to me about things that are like humans, even more so vice – versa.
